Effie Trinket Mockingjay inspired look by Cellesria
Effie Trinket Mockingjay inspired look
Here is a quick inspired painting I created (for a time-lapse painting video) of Effie Trinket (played by Elizabeth Banks) with a custom Mockingjay look I created for her. While I always enjoy her crazy and fabulous Capitol looks, for this painting I wanted to create a darker look to show her likely support for the uprising. The blood splatter across her face symbolizes both the uprising as well as the part she played as a propaganda tool for the Capitol in the annual Hunger Games. Since I do love her colorful looks too, however, I may consider doing another, and much lighter painting of her in the future as well. We probably won't see her looking anything like this in the film but I thought it would be interesting to create a look like this for her.

I looked at a few images of her for reference to study her bone structure, but this image was not copied from any other content.

Here is a link to the time-lapse video on youtube:

You can also watch it here on vimeo:

Also, I apologize for all of the zooming in and out throughout the video, I zoom in and out a lot during my workflow and editing all of this out would be a nightmare for me.

Really enjoyed Mockinjay but wow it's going to be hard to wait for part 2 now. Definitely as great as the other two films but much darker.

hope you all enjoy it!

Hey everyone,

I'ts been such a long time since posted anything last, I've been pretty busy and haven't had as much time to paint this past year - Finally got around to finishing this one though. Started it I think over a year ago and have been working on quite a few different paintings on and off at the same time including this one. Have some extra free time this week and hope to finish some of the others as well. Hope you all like it!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2012, 2:04 PM

Wow over 25,000 visits to my page, thank you all so much!

I recently finished a speed painting video and posted  it on my website, blog and to youtube as well! I also uploaded the finished image here on DA  for those interested - check it out here.  A link to the video is also included in the description.

In other news a few of my images are now available as wallpapers on CG!

I'd like to thank you all again for your support, visits, journal features, critiques, watches, favs, comments etc. I appreciate all of it greatly and look forward to discovering more work from you all and sharing mine with you as well. I have quite a few works-in-progress that I will finish soon! I am also still working on my art book project and hope to finish that soon as well. I have changed it quite a bit over the past few months due to the fact that I am a perfectionist and want to make it the best that it can be. The book will include my best artwork (including new images that won't be posted on any online galleries)  tutorials/painting walk-throughs and short stories etc.

Once again thank you all! As I've mentioned before in previous journal entries, I apologize for not thanking you all for the favs etc. I don't visit DA that often, if I did I'd hardly get any work done :/ but I do try and respond to every comment that I receive!

Also thanks for the llama badges though I still don't really understand how they work :/

Please "like" my Facebook Page for current updates and news etc.

Thanks again everyone! :D
